After dark, Stone Town’s poor lighting and absence of people can feel a bit threatening, but it is actually quite safe.
While exploring the backstreets of Stone Town I found this small bakery. It uses a single wood-fired oven to produce a constant supply of brick-shaped white loaves for delivery to local shops and markets.
Stone Town is served by a large food market divided into meat, fruit and fish. From numerous small abbatoirs on the outskirts of town, freshly slaughtered beef and lamb is delivered early each day.
Stairway to heaven…
